Fulham coach Marco Silva addressed the press ahead of Fulham's Carabao Cup Semi-Final Second Leg against Liverpool at Craven Cottage on Wednesday evening.

It's positive team news going into the fixture, with no fresh injury concerns going into tie: "Adama is still out. All the others will be available," Marco confirmed.

It has been a remarkable turnaround for Marco's side in the Carabao Cup from last season, where we crashed out of the competition in the first round against Crawley Town.

"My ambition is to always play cup competitions and go further," said Marco, when asked about his approach to the cup competitions.

"The first game in the Carabao Cup was poor last season. It was an important moment for us to talk about the approach in the future."

Wednesday night's fixture opens up the opportunity for Fulham to reach their first Cup final in the competition but have to come up against a tough Liverpool side who have the goal advatange going into the second leg.

"Our focus is really on the next one," said Marco. "It's going to be so, so important for us. We are talking about a Semi-Final.

"A chance to play a Final, a chance to play at Wembley.

"Normally we don't plan ahead for the next two or three games, our focus has always been like that since I arrived here.

"The next one is always the most important but one but we have to be honest, the next one [Liverpool] is the most important one."

Marco was also asked about whether this game was the biggest game during his time in England, in which he responded: "It is one of them, yes, but I want to have another one next month."

Our manager also took the opportunity to talk up the fans at Craven Cottage, encouraging them to make the noise that will help to guide the team into a final at Wembley.

"They are going to be crucial. They are going to play a big part," he said.

"We need them always behind the team. We want to make Craven Cottage really difficult for Liverpool."
